Weight-loss and Body Toning in ShanghaiAt Sageikan, treatment can assist a person’s effort in weight-loss and body tone improvement. The treatment focuses on removing the swelling or heaviness of the body by improving the body’s metabolism.
A decrease in size is very effective for patient’s suffering from swelling.
For people with sever swelling in the lower part of the body, a drop in size can be experience at every treatment and visually obvious without having to measure the body.
One patient lost 9kgs in weight and 5cm in their hip size by a combination of Japanese manual therapeutics and Guasha therapy, but without any change in dieting or additional physical exercise.
Toning and loosing weight can be easily realized by Japanese manual therapeutics.
- When realigning the backbone, the position of the waist will naturally rise and this will change the waist and hip width.
- When the sacroiliac joints and hip joints are corrected, sagging buttocks will tighten and rise.
- When hip joints are treated facedown the buttocks become smaller.
- When the hip joints are treated face up, the hip width will decrease because the legs are returned to their correct position.
On request, a patient’s measurements, size and weight can be recorded to so that treatment results can be monitored.
However, results can be seen even without measuring as clothing such a trousers and boots will feel looser.

Practitioner Kudo’s Comments
This patient had visually obvious swelling and a typical pear shape body.
For such persons it is easy to loose weight through Guasha therapy.
The therapy moves the water collected in the legs and prepares the lungs, spleen, and kidney to function better to fix the body’s metabolism.
The patient would always rush into the bathroom after each treatment session.
This means the water that had collected in the legs would be expelled immediately after the treatment.
This patient attended the self-Guasha class, offered at Sageikan, and was able to do additional treatment on her self and so the results were even better.
The latter half of the treatment period, the patient started to loose more weight and was also able to maintain a thinner body.
The body’s water metabolism became stable and it was harder for her to gain weight.
In the beginning of the treatment period, people that had not seen her in a while would say, "You look thinner and prettier ".
However the latter half of the treatment, even people she met everyday would notice the change of figure and weight loss.
